This is a valid and worthwhile goal, it's simply different from the goal of creating true AGI paul wrote: > Motion and the reasons why motion is used in developing recognition of > objects is only one issues that is informed by a true knowledge of > biological intelligence. It's true that this is only one issue. However, my belief is that MUCH of the task of creating AGI, is a matter of dealing with difficult issues one at a time. One needs a viable general framework to begin with, otherwise one can't deal with numerous interrelated issues in an integrated, synergetic way. But once one HAS a viable general framework, one needs to proceed through numerous specific difficult issues, dealing with each one in the context of one's general framework -- working out "functional specializations" of one's general framework to various specialized issues... paul wrote: > Artificial General Intelligence may be targeting the development > of a means > for processing data into information and information into machine > ontology. Like motion and vision processing, this too is only a part of general intelligence. However, this is an indispensible part, whereas vision & motion analysis are a dispensible part. Any mind has got to be able to transform data into information, and to build ontologies based on the information. I believe this is a necessary but not sufficient condition for creating a digital mind. Of course, creating ontologies using AI tools is also a useful goal independently of the goal of creating an AGI. Digitally created ontologies may be used by human minds in many ways, as part of knowledge management systems for example. This is one of many ways in which "fragmentary" or "incomplete" AGI systems may be used to serve valuable purposes in the very short term. -- Ben G ------- To unsubscribe, change your address, or temporarily deactivate your subscription, please go to http://v2.listbox.com/member/
